A joy that is shared is a joy that is doubled. (Professor John Roy)

It’s much more fun to share your good fortune with someone else than to enjoy it alone, isn’t it? Whether it’s a good report from a doctor, an unexpected gift, a tax refund—whatever brings joy to us, we want to share the news. Even when we don’t have much, we can share something that will bring joy to someone else.

Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled          up in rich generosity (2 Corinthians 8:2).
